Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231126
When you switch to compiz, the workspace switcher doesn't change.
Last modified: 2008-04-05 19:19:20 EDT
Description of problem:
I've been switching between using compiz and metacity and I've noticed that when
you switch from compiz to metacity the desktop switcher changes appropriately,
but when you go from metacity to compiz, the desktop switcher doesn't change,
but stays with the metacity version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[rodd@localhost ~]$ rpm -q metacity compiz
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use System > Preferences > Look and Feel > Desktop affects to enable/disable
Oops, better add that I'm using Workspace Switcher 2.17.92
I have this problem now that compiz-0.3.6-2 has been pushed to FC6. To get the
workspace switcher working properly I have to log out and log in again after
Maybe this bug should be changed to affecting FC6 instead of devel..? I don't know
Still a problem in Fedora 7 final
Not 100% sure what this bug is about, but I think it might be fixed by the
recent change in desktop effects. Could you give the rawhide version
(compiz-0.5.2-5.0ec3ec.fc8) a try and see if it is fixed?
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
I'm still using f7 but will update when test2 is released.
I've tried installing compiz using yum and also by downloading the rpm, but it
seems it needs quite a few packages and I'm keen to leave my stable f7 install
Can you be a little patient and I'll report when I've installed test2?
Cool -- let give it a mont, OK?
Rodd, have you managed to try test2 (well, test3 was released mean time and that
would be even better to try)? I would have to close this bug as
INSUFFICIENT_DATA unless you reply as soon as possible.
Seems to work fine now.
I'm actually having troubles switching back to using compiz sometimes, something
seems to be failing. If I do it from the command line, then it switches, but
the borders and title bar don't appear. Need's bz'ing? Or has someone noticed?
What is your graphics card? What driver do you use? Could you please assign your
current /var/log/Xorg.0.log to this bug?
Okay, to be clear, the original issue related to this bug I believe is resolved.
I'm using a nvidia graphics card with the livna nvidia driver.
